Couple Who Had Been Together for 67 Years Died Holding Each Others’ Hands. A Beautiful Love Story!
This is a really wonderful story of two people who are meant to be together until the very end.
Love is an inexplicable feeling that brings two people together. Some people are just meant to be and no matter what happens through their life, love will find a way to bring them together in the end.
Meet Floyd and Violet Hartwig; they grew up together in Easton California but they were separated when Floyd enlisted in the US navy after graduation. But after a couple of years, the two met each other again and this time, they have been inseparable.
They work on their ranch diligently and they build a loving family. But as they advance in age, both of them grew weaker. Violet first became ill and shortly after, Floyd was diagnosed with kidney failure. In their final moments, their children decided to bring together their parents' hospital beds so they could hold each other. They passed away hand in hand and the Hartwig children knew this is what their parents wanted all along.
Armless Man Throws an Impressive Ceremonial First Pitch at a Baseball Game
Tom Willis threw a perfect strike!
Most baseball fans dream of doing the honor of throwing the first pitch of a game someday. The ceremonial first pitch indicates "the end of the pregame festivities and the beginning of the game."
It is an important role given to different notable and inspiring personalities and that includes some of the former presidents of the United States.
So during a recent Mariners-Giants game in the AT&T park in San Fransico, California, all eyes were on the honored guest---Tom Willis.
Preschooler Program in a Nursing Home Touches Both Kids and Older Adults In a Special Way
What will the very young and the very old learn from each other?
When we grow old, many of us are going to have to enter nursing homes. In the US, more and more people are expected to reach the age of 65 in the next 25 years. Forty three percent of older adults experience social isolation and this is highly likely to develop into depression, loneliness, mental and physical decline. People tend to enter their elderly parents and grandparents in nursing homes as this is sadly, the only way to go. Young adults and middle-age people are too busy with work hence, they can't look after their elderly relatives more closely.
We have heard of horrific stories about nursing homes -- the mismanagement, the abuse and the neglect. But we found this nursing home in Seattle that has a preschool program that allows the very young to interact with the very old. It sounds odd to let people from both ends of the age spectrum come together but we think both of them have learned many things during the program. We think this short film was made a few years back but the lessons in it are worth sharing.
Watch the video here:
Our elderly relatives need time and opportunities to interact and feel alive and we think this activity is a great way to experience that. The preschool children, on the other hand, sure learned a thing or two from their elders but above all, it is a joy to see that the value of giving importance to older adults were instilled in them at a very young age.
